Property Details

Mihingo Lodge is comprised of just 12 tented rooms, each raised on wooden platforms with thatched roofs overhead. The spacious accommodations are light and airy, each with their own unique charm and character, and feature en-suite bathrooms with modern amenities including flush toilets and hot and cold running water. Guests also experience the utmost privacy at Mihingo Lodge, as each tent is located on its own secluded parcel of the land, whether perched on a rocky outcrop, nestled in the forest, adjacent to the lake, or down by the water hole. These specific locations guarantee the utmost in isolated luxury and magnificent vistas.

The main dining area of Mihingo Lodge was constructed of native materials, and below is the communal fire pit and beautiful infinity swimming pool. All are perfect locations from which to enjoy the spectacular sunsets over Lake Mburo National Park. Dining at Mihingo Lodge is a fusion of cultures, herbs, and spices, offering a vast array of crisp salads, homemade yogurts, and three-course dinners of samosas, smoked Nile perch, and grilled beef filets. All meals can be catered to dietary requirements, and babysitters can be arranged for parents who wish to enjoy a late, relaxed meal.

In addition to game drives, guests of Mihingo Lodge can enjoy nature walks, bush biking, boat trips on Lake Mburo, and fishing. Mihingo Lodge is also the only luxury property in Uganda to offer night game drives and horse safaris in a national park. The wildlife within Lake Mburo National Park is varied and compact, ranging from semi-aquatic mammals along the papyrus swamps to plains game like zebra and topi. It is also the only place in Uganda to spot the impala and eland in large numbers, and therefore boasts the highest concentration of leopards, who are known to follow their favorite impala prey. For guests that simply want to relax at the lodge, there is a water hole below the pool that is known to attract a parade of resident buffalo, eland, impala, warthog, bushbuck, and zebra.
